of the economic downturn, the education in our country has had to squeeze from every angle, city budgets for education have dropped, state budgets have dropped, so it makes it challenging most experts would say to believe our students in the future will be competing on a level playing field with other students around the world because the bigger class size is now and less time with quality teachers. how would you improve education first of all and in fact mr. smith you suggested eliminating the department of education altogether. is that the right plan at this moment? casey: the best place is that the state level. that is where between the local school boards, teachers and parents. now i don't -- i said i wanted to take a look at the department of education, and it's possible. but they do some good things so we don't want to throw that away. but we need -- any federal organizations basically as big as the department of education there is a lot waste. just to get that money to the states. they can do it themselves and that is a state issue but it would be more economical doing that. and w
the distractions, and listen and learn and read and question more about who is really benefiting and educating ourselves on how we got here and figure out how each of us can make a positive impact, that's the way to change the system. knowledge sharing, truth-seeking, open debate, fresh ideas, and discovering a common ground among each other. no matter what your political persuasion, we are the critical time in our nation's history. it's time to take our country back from the private interests who control our beliefs, our opinions and our lives. [cheers and applause] thank you very much for joining us tonight. our moderator this evening is award-winning broadcaster and media personality larry king. [cheers and applause] >> don't, don't. >> his new online home is aura tv and he is the host of "larry king now." welcome larry. [cheers and applause] >> thank you. and welcome everybody. i'm very happy to be doing this. i think all voices should be heard. a few notes about the format for tonight's debate, really easy job for me because it's a rather simple format. each candidate will have an opportu
have lots of water. there is any number of issues, whether it is around energy or education. this strikes me as a way to get around the challenge of government is dysfunctional and compartmentalize. you have a lot here. it seems like this might be part of the solution. >> before i comment about that, i want to be sure that we do not forget those have been unemployed so long they are out of the workforce. real question will skill readiness. i do not want to forget them in the equation. it is music my ears to hear the definition of the problem and information. it is music to my ears to hear that. we have a piecemeal approach of a couple of initiatives. they're really attract well to analyze and a city that is depopulating. you're trying to talk about redefining wealth. i think of the outbidding the police cars with the cameras, everybody has done that i think. both of those were seeded with grant money. when the grant ran out, we have not been able to keep up. there needs to be that money, whether it be federal or state. there needs to be this institutional approach that redef
. third was this body mass of education. the education is good in some pockets of the region and that in some. how can we use smarter principles, raced to the top, whatever. but it's really focused on what are the problems. let's take our breath and move on to the others. >> so that they take care and also folks have questions. the microphones are here. what i take from this conversation i want to get your response on the advice is to think about the city is a network of players, some very large, like a henry ford medical come even some of the cultural institutions, some of the employers, et cetera. a network of players who can take their own responsibility, obviously in partnership with the government around certain sets of issues. and the michael's point about what is the right issue to tackle because in the southeast, there's no water. last time i checked, you got lots of water, the great lakes. not your problem. but there's obviously a number of issues, whether it's run energy, education, health. this strikes me as a way to get around the challenge of government is dysfun
sectors of the economy -- education, health care, energy -- that haven't really been disrupted that much in the last 25 years, what i think of as the first internet revolution, getting everybody to believe it was important, get connected, multiple devices, multiple networks, that's sort of been accomplished. the second revolution is how you use the mobility of the internet to transform other aspects of life. those are worthy, you know, great entrepreneurs across the country are supporting, and they are the industries that are going to drive, you know, the future. initially, it was sort of the agriculture revolution, kind of, you know, the midwest and then sort of the industrial revolution and then sort of the finance and media revolution, more recently the technology revolution, the next wave is where we need to be positioned as a nation, and we really need to recognize these entrepreneurs are in some ways american heroes, too, because they're the ones who are taking the risk of starting these companies that can change the world, but also make sure we have a robust, growing economy in wh
legitimate and getting an education and making sure that your relationships, people were legitimately married. anything that pointed back words or made you illegitimate was not really something they wanted to talk about and have out there. it is too bad because it closed a lot of doors in our family and that is what you found in michele obama's family. very fortunate, you were able to help and truly open those doors for her family. >> at least with been -- within her family, there are those conversations happening. as i said americans, ordinary americans across the country are making these discoveries with dna testing so these conversations are happening around the country. when you talk about marriage and the importance of legitimacy, one of the other stories which talks about the variations of the american experience during slavery was the first lady's family had ancestors who were freed for decades before the civil war and one of the most interesting records i came across was a record which showed those members of her family who after the civil war went to the courthouse and lined up to ge
develop its domestic rail infrastructure and matured through training and education and managing that rail system through the creation of a career in transportation. think about growing saudi arabia and talent and not hiring saudi arabians. many are aggressive in seeking out saudi arabian students for some programs. now, as they graduate, we will bring them on for training within the company. with the intent of starting them out in entry-level managers and engineers in the kingdom. they are starting a career. not just being hired on for a job. they did all this. they beat the competition. they won. other american companies are making a significant impact. not just on their businesses, but also on the future of saudi arabia. exxon mobil has a long tradition in the kingdom. among their success is a huge refinery about two hours north of a main city. the refinery has 92% saudi arabian employees. stretching all the way from management to blue-collar employees. exxon mobil was into saudia station before saudia station was required. we anticipate this to the same degree of the new refinery that
program, clear-cut ways to improve education. >> joe, i remember a couple of years ago -- >> i do it every year. >> but a series of wonderful articles, before the midterm for "time" magazine. you talked over a lot of the midwest, middle class. and you found that the -- china came up ten times as often as afghanistan -- >> 20. >> 20 types as often as afghanistan. when you look at the -- what an average middle-class american family is facing, particularly kind of people who work in factories, they're up against probably a generation of this kind of wage competition and -- possibly wage deflation because of china, things. do you -- what do you think happens to the politics of america if that middle class is not appreciably better five, six, eight years from now? >> well, we're heading toward, i think, a demographic period of real difficulty as the white majority declines. and there's -- and there's a fear of -- out in the middle of the country of this new america that's emerging that is so multicultural, multiethnic. but i do think -- once again, i'm going to be slightly optimistic here becau
you some money. my job is not just to entertain you, fwou educate -- but to educate you, so call me. china. china. the people's republic is more important than we are. that's my conclusion after today's session where the averages rocked a bit higher. the dow gaining 136 points. the nasdaq growing 1.44%. i never want to sell the united states short, ever. hurricane sandy could impact the entire nation as federal money and private insurance starts paying off and construction comes back with a vengeance. auto and home industries are coming back with more confidence than ever. and there is real hope in the air that tomorrow's big employment report might show some nice gains. the jobs report were a tad better than expects. that said, the upward move we saw in many stocks today, particularly in the industrials cannot be traced to anything happening here. no, not at all. these gains were all about one piece of data out of china. and not anything else you heard about why the stocks moved is wrong. we got the boost of stocks from fedex and the freight transporter into a mining and equipment
to entertain you, fwou educate y-- but to educate you, so call me. new york city mayor mike bloomberg ran that sweet chime this morning, the opening bell to the new york stock exchange and suddenly wall street was back in business. and even though not all the markets implied -- nasdaq down. you could feel the blood flowing through the veins of the stock market after two days where its heart was stilled. it wasn't just wall street that opened for business today, though. the main street that runs clear across this country may now be open for a new kind of business. one that's pretty darned moribund for years. the business of construction. yes, mother nature dealt a vicious blow and our hearts to go out to families who lost loved ones. but in spite of the tragedy, in our own curious way, sandy has given us the opportunity for a boost since the government rebuilt southern florida after hurricane andrew in 1992. a reconstruction so huge, it moved the country's entire gdp needle just when we needed it, after right a nasty recession. and now that we've assessed the damage, or we're trying to at
. an educational two weeks for a child. [inaudible] >> if you are not for others, no one will be for you. if you are for others, you will be for you. now or never. i would say the relevancy to you, because giving is probably not something you can afford to do now. you are in a competitive world today. one of the things you should do is hopefully you want to add your own initiatives. at a minimum to improve your stance in the world is to try to find community activities that you can get back to to distinguish your resume from the next person. it is people like me are getting resumes every day in this difficult economic environment. from high class standing people. 800 sats, they are looking for jobs. what you have to do is find a hook on your resume and show a high sense of community service. when i interview people, basically, the desire and commitment to be the best, a strong work ethic. here i am introducing a legend. you know, the legends do something different. you know, these are some of the characteristics. you can get help from the university. if numbers don't speak to you, in other words
hard to do. that's, you know, we would -- . >> it used to be. the education system in many respects encouraged that. you would go and get a postgraduate degree to work out how to make something an mba, maybe. you don't need anymore. the way of -- the tools are there for you to engage automatically. now, you just need to plug them together. there are these stories that are emerging that are allow you to wrap around the existing system. they don't support us. and they haven't supported these sorts of entrepreneurs but our tools do. that's the really vital thing. >> i think the best thing michigan can do or the city of detroit is literally a marketing campaign like knick key, you can do. everybody has ideas. and, i mean, i was in berlin, actually, there's a panel in berlin v detroit which is interesting. you can feel the energy building. there's a come plaintiff's exhibit over there of germans v the u.s. they feel like we are faster and innovative. what you're starting to sense is build the confidence they can do it as well. we're seeing more entrepreneurship come out of here. i feel t
across pakistan where she has been a vocal campaigner for girls' education. she was targeted by the taliban because of it. now, public anger has turned against the militants. her father who has vowed to return the family to pakistan has expressed his gratitude. >> when she stood pakistan turns and this is a turning point, which is not only my daughter, but daughter of everybody. >> reporter: doctors here at the queen elizabeth hospital in birmingham talk of her very good progress. the head wound is no longer infected and it does not appear to be any brain damage. her vision and hearing appear good, although they're still being tested and let's say she has a very good recollection of the traumatic events that brought her here. she's not forgotten her cause either. one of the first things she asked, says her father, is whether he brought her school books. a sign of how determined this young girl remains. all right, doctors do, though, say, that there is a long way for her to go. a lot of reconstructive surgery she has to have done on her head. remember, the bullet shattered her
grateful that president obama and my husband are making quality investments to move us forward on education. [applause] i am also involved in this election as a woman who cares about the direction of this country. i see barack and joe stand up for our freedoms every single day. the very first bill president obama signed was the ledbetter fair pay act. [applause] the president and vice-president know how important it is for women to make our own decisions about our own bodies and our own health care. [applause] so many women of my generation have fought hard for roe versus wade and for equal rights. we do not want our daughters and our granddaughters to have to go back and fight those same battles that we fought decades ago, and we cannot forget about the importance of the supreme court and the direction this country could take. [applause] finally, i care about this country, as this -- about this election as a military mom. our sons served in iraq for a year. i have had the honor of meeting many of our military families. i see how much they love this country and the sacrifice they have made
that nomenclature. they educate people about issues, policy options, things like that, but they are a lot to do some political action. it cannot be primarily what they are about, but with these court decisions in 2010, they are able to be much more aggressive and specific in the way they are involved in politics. they can run advertising on television and do other things that advocate an election or the defeat of a candidate. because they are mainly about educating people and not mainly about elections, they have been able to do that without disclosing the sources of the money they have got. hundreds of millions of dollars being spent this year without us knowing very much about where it came from. host: eric is with us from cedar town, georgia. caller: what i would like to say about this money, it is basically generations of money that a lot of elderly what people have built up over time. now they have come out and decided to buy an election. it is not taxed or nothing. they need to start taxing this money. if the rich people do not want to pay more taxes, the one to take the tax money they are sav
are friends. it is real. i want, therefore, three times, you know, syrian turkish border. educate imagine how much is becoming a regional threat for the security region. the second thing i think united states past -- you're always talk about human rights supporting democracy, supporting kids rights and human rights. what about the serious? now, i really was crying when i was sitting the kids going to school for two years. and they might be terrorists. so my last comment is what is the incentive for, if you are just going to -- [inaudible] and i am sure those will not be good news for united states. >> i think one of the things that we haven't heard at all here, and yet should be uppermost in our minds is what went wrong with iraq, is what happened the day after. it's what you think about how you defeat bashar or getting to be part of a negotiated solution, fine, but i think one of the most telling comments was that, that it could end, this crisis could into more but the effects of it will linger on. you don't in the blood feuds and the killings and violence and the factions and everyone goes
. if it is the communitycollege -- thos kids can get an education on the china currency bill. the biggest jobs bill to pass the senate -- josh mandel doesn't support this. and the auto rescue. the contrast is this clear. mandel supports tax cuts for the richest people, in the hopes some trickles down, and i support focusing on the middle class, and community colleges, auto rescue. >> that concludes our debate. i want to thank our candidates. with the two candidats and the aarp. thank you for watching and listening. your job is not done. you have until nov. 6 to cast your vote. i am chuck todd with nbc news. goodnight. >> we have more campaign 2012 .ebate coming up ver see some of a to the damage due to hurricane sandy. crews are restoring power to the hundreds of thousands affected by the storm. there are downed trees and flooded roads that are still a part of the problem. there's still no word yet on a new address tomorrow. we're told that the metric system will be back in business -- the metro system will be back in business early this afternoon, around 2:00 p.m. for now, the president has set aside the
from getting housing, getting an education -- [applause] >> i guess the question is of fairness. you shouldn't have two systems, one where based on your race or class you can access treatment and move on with your life and another one where because of law enforcement tactics and focus, you end up caught up in a system where you can never move on. you're permanently trapped and weighed down by having a felony conviction. the reason i call it a war on crumbs is the type of people we see at the hall of justice, i brought with me some props. i brought with me a sweetener packet. this is a gram of sweetener. most of the time this is on the high end of the amount of narcotics we see people in possession of. sometimes people have two or three sweetener packages on them and we call them drug dealers, you know. that's why we call it a war on crumbs because the amounts we are talking about are mine us schedule. -- minnesota us schedule. the fact -- are miniscule. and based on less than a packet of sweetener, to me is outrageous. and to me this is a positive first step, in my opinion, because a
... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> even when the stock markets close because of bad weather and wall street under three feet of water, i'm out here trying to make us some money. lately it has become harder. my stocks keep running the gountlet gauntlett of europe and china. we have companies that are creating value for shareholders regardless of what is going on in the rest of the world. the economy could smash into a retaining wall and i believe these stocks are still bullish place to be. hence why i'm talking about the break up, corporate break ups. we love it when companies try to buyback loads of stock at low prices and by making smart acquisitions. but the be all and end up is when they try to make more money for you. we see this play out over and over again. although, with kraft the snack spin off. so tonight, i want to talk about another company that is breaking itself up. newscorp has five major business types. they own foxnews
level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >>> normally i tell you to stay away from stocks right after they become public, but at the beginning of april i made an exception. i told you to buy annie's. it's a natural and organic food company that had just gone public and soared 89% its first day of trading. at the time the stock was the 34.65. annie's rallied up to $48, and pulled back to $39 and change. that's still up 14% from where i first reported it. last night annie's reported a miss quarter
because government is the spender of last resort and encouraging investment, education, job training, infrastructure, that growth actually enables the debt to shrink as proportion of the economy over all. europe and particularly spain and britain are the worst examples. they embarked on austerity economics, what happens? they actually shrink their economy. they go into recession and their debt or deficit becomes a bigger problem as as the overall economy. >> eliot: i want to take snippets of this conversation and send it to every voter and that would be a guarantee that there would an second term for president obama. previews of uc berkeley goldman school of public policy. as always, thank you. >> thanks. >> eliot: dennis kelleher president and ceo of better markets, nonpartisan organization promoting public interestage financial reform. den, you heard robert reich who has not gotten enough attention that is important that that we need to focus on. >> the most important number to talk about outside of the political context. it's a long-term problem for the economy, and a long-term pr
at -- >> you don't have to. you're not here to agree. you're here to elucidate, to educate. >> if you consider that how much money romney has tried to spend in the last couple of weeks trying to move the numbers in ohio and he hasn't. at this point they're trying to buy some cheap tv advertising to buy some time in pennsylvania, that's not going to happen. he may stand there and tell ohio, hey, i need you. it's not going to happen. he's already behind. and if you look at the battleground early vote states, he has to win 54% of the remaining votes in ohio to win the state. so those numbers, if you consider how many of the early vote people have already voted, in colorado, where you cited the ppp poll, he's got to win 55% of the remaining votes in colorado to win. that's where you start to see the wisdom of the obama team strategy, of a strong ground game and focusing on early votes and those sporadic voters and that the map for romney is getting tighter. >> ari, there is that decision is there another route. sometimes the democrats are doing it but here it is for romney. is there a route around
at what was covered thoroughly. one of them was education, and at one point the president but did meehan said -- looked at me and said we have not discussed education at all, and i said in my head, sorry, he spent the first 20 minutes of the first debate talking about education. we knew -- remember, the first questions all came from the town hall, so i could not just come off with a question that was not represented in their questions. we knew that syria, iran and israel would be thoroughly covered. we didn't feel the need to fill the hole. >> but immigration and gun control might not. >> it might not. >> you would assume that would be the last chance. >> how do you prepare assume each of you have an individual method. >> i make myself insane. i shut myself off in the house with a lot of cards, read books the candidates have written, stump speeches, right about 100 questions, knowing that i might get about 20 in, and i do not think i got that many then i rehearsed. -- many. then i rehearse. then, after all of the, you have to stop. you have to know it well enough that you can't stand to
a level playing field by pressure countries like china. three, he'll improve education, retrain workers and help the unemployed. these will likely be state run initiatives, however. four, etch' slash spending to cut the deficit and shrink the deficit. five, he'll had help small businesses that includes repealing obama care and cutting taxes. let's give romney the benefits of any doubt here and say he gets all these plans going in his first year in office. by that point if the country is on track to create 12 million jobs in four years, the labor market should be adding an average of 250,000 jobs a month. the economy just adds 114,000 positions last month by the way to give you some context. vin weber will tell us how he gets this done. he's a policy adviser to the romney campaign and former congressman. i'm bringing you the questions people are asking me out here. >> sure. >> undecided voters, they don't disagree with the goal. they don't disagree with the idea that we want a stronger economy. but i've hit governor romney hard on his jobs claim. give me specifics as to how we get big-ti

-working, creative, risk-taking, business-starting, education-seeking people. it's who we are. i have, throughout my life, seen some of the great qualities in the human spirit in the american people i've come to know. there's some stories i love to tell that describe something about the american heart. i was a leader in the boy scouts of america some years ago. and i was at a court of honor. a court of honor is where we give out eagle scout awards and other awards. i was at a table in the gymnasium next to the american flag. the person who was speaking at the microphone was the scout master from monument, colorado. and he said their scout troop wanted to have a special flag. they bought an american flag, gold tassels around it. they sent it off to be flown above the capitol. when it came home, they said, i wonder if it can go on the space shuttle. they contacted nasa. nasa agreed. he said, you can't imagine the pride of our boys, you know, watching from their classrooms, seeing the space shuttle "challenger" launch on the tv screen. then they saw it explode on the tv. he said he called nasa a couple

the economy at the top. budget, health care, education, all of them up there. what are you hearing from the undecided voters? what is going to make them make up their mind? >> well, let's be fair. they're a small piece of the pie. if you're in florida or virginia or ohio, states that are not decided, you could actually decide this election. and what these undecided voters seem to want is specifics. they don't want the promises they have been through the last four years. they're prepared to do the hard math. they want to see the actual equation. they don't want to hear 12 million jobs in four years, they want to hear exactly how you create 12 million jobs in four years. they don't want to hear tax cuts or 1 million more manufacturing jobs, they want to know specifically how you're going to do it. from mitt romney, they want to see the math, and from barack obama they want to see, hey, you couldn't do this for the last two years, you did say it was because of congress, but what happens if you end up with the exact same congressional makeup? what will you do differently now that you didn't
everybody is a link so anybody that is on line as a potential avenue. it is a public education issue. it's like in the 1960's the seat belt campaign they didn't use to make cars with seat belts. there was a big issue. nobody's .1 to put on a seat belt and they began to buckle up for safety. now if we ever really think of getting in the vehicle without putting on your seat belt is just a reflex. you do it. it would be great and a great bowl for us to have that same kind of action and reflex capability where cyber is concerned. >> so what is the symbol -- >> we have a campaign called think connect, which is designed to mask people before the download and e-mail from a source they've never seen before, for example, they really think what could that be, and protect themselves. and there's a whole host of things individuals can do. again we have them posted on the website commands to a number of entities across the country in terms of what individuals can do they are trying to push down to younger people. you mentioned kindergarteners. yes as they grow up this is just a part of their life. th
